I have had several miscarriages about 9 to be exact in the last few years- I am 42 and can get pregnant- but always implant late and have a week beta and it fizzles- It just happened the past weekend- I was a day late took a test and it was barely positive- two days later I retested and it was almost gone but went to the dr anyway to get a blood drawn and there was still no period- and my beta was 179 w a 12 progesterone- shows you how wrong the sticks can be but I had no sore boobs and no symptoms so I knew it would not last- sure enough a few days later my beta was 129 and I have just fininshed my period- Why do I always implant late any advice on what test I should have the doctor run or hormone test or what I can do to implant earlier- I am soooo frustrated
I posted my basal chart so you can see I ovulated day 13 with a implantation on cd 10 after ovulation- but my beta on day 16 was only 179- I always implant so late-
any help would be great- this just does not seem right I can get pregnant but they are always so weak and never stick
yes, I am but all the test I had ran 8 months ago they said they were fine- but it just seems like someone is missing something- My FSH is 5 so I know I am older but how can my FSH be low showing I still ovulate regular and they all be bad eggs- my Dr said FSH of 5 is great for my age
If you're interested, there are natural supplements that make claims about improving egg quality. Co-enzyme Q10 and DHEA are two that I stumbled across the other night that is being taken by older women with success. As with everything, there are people who swear by it and others who it didn't work for, but I would think it would be worth a try.
If you google "ttc co-enzyme q10 and dhea" (without the quotes), the second link that shows up in the search is a pretty good discussion among women who have tried it. They discuss dosage and there are some older women in that thread who got pregnant using it.
